USA's Monique Lamoureux Morando celebrates scoring against Canada

The IIHF prefers to use the shootout at the Olympics and world championships partly because it limits how long games last, which is important when there are other games to play on the same ice later in the day. With time running out on USA's gold medal hopes, Monique Lamoureux-Morando tied the game on a breakaway opportunity created by Kelly Pannek.

In 2014, Team USA was defeated by Canada 3-2 in overtime, just missing the gold medal.

It took the US women's hockey team more than a year to achieve their goal, but just like beating Canada Wednesday, they got the job done.

"This team", he said, "is by far the most resilient group of guys".

The greatest thing about the game - and the USA win - was that it was the purest form of hockey: a battle fueled by raw competitiveness, passion, and love for the game.

It was a long, hard road to victory for the US women and not just on the ice.

"Emotions run high at the Olympic Games, and never more so than in a gold-medal game, but at all times we expect our program to act professionally and demonstrate sound sportsmanship", said Davidson.

Boutin couldn't hide her elation after her third win of her first-ever Olympic Games.

Last night, the United States Women's Hockey team pulled off a comeback for the ages on 38th the anniversary of the legendary Miracle on Ice.

Team USA's Hilary Knight scored a goal during a power-play in the first period. Canadian hockey player, Jocelyne Larocque is being called "Un-Canadian" because she refused to wear her silver medal during the medal ceremony after the game.

"Every single day from the time the last Olympics ended and we decided we were going out for another cycle, everything single day, everything I've done has always had this day, this moment in the back of the my mind, the front of my mind".

Canada had won four straight golds in women's hockey, losing only in 1998 when the sport made its Olympic debut.

Anything else - especially a second-place medal after a devastating loss to Canada's nemesis - just wouldn't do.

Shuster is a four-time Olympian who won bronze at the 2006 Torino games as a member of Pete Fenson's team. The gold medal, who even knows where that could go. She said he used to play football, baseball and hockey as well. She has 17 goals in the Winter Games - one short of the record - and she also scored on the second Canadian attempt in the shootout to knot the tiebreaker 1-1.

"It's great skiing, but it reminds me of something that (US skier) Buddy Werner used to say", Kildow told USA Today Sports. "The young ones as well, they were so mature throughout the year and they showed it at the Olympics".

All five BC skaters played in each of Team U.S.A.'s five tournament games, and the Eagles' four defenseman-Pfalzer, Keller, Flanagan, and Barnes-logged major minutes in the gold medal game, particularly during the 4-on-4 overtime period.
